This authentic 10-day safari itinerary takes you straight into three of Tanzania’s prettiest hidden gems. Kick off your trip in the Seronera, one of the most reliable game-viewing areas in the central Serengeti National Park. It offers East Africa’s best cheetah-viewing opportunities and front-row seats to the predator-action of the Wildebeest Migration from about May to July every year. Your accommodation will be Namiri Plains, a beautiful tented camp.
Then move to the private Kwihala Camp set in a remote corner of Ruaha National Park, Tanzania’s best-kept secret. Experience Africa at its wildest, without sacrificing comfort and luxury. Ruaha is home to the biggest herds of elephant in East Africa and has a fantastic reputation for quality predator sightings. Lion, leopard, cheetah, spotted hyena and endangered wild dog roam here in healthy numbers.
Then travel to Roho ya Selous – the ‘Heart of the Selous’ – and spend your last couple of days at this stylish tented camp overlooking the celebrated Rufiji River, the defining feature of Africa’s biggest game reserve. Nyerere National Park (Selous) is remote and wonderfully wild – a gigantic conservation area almost double the size of Belgium. It is a sanctuary for the Big 5 and Africa’s top predators like lion, leopard, cheetah, wild dog and spotted hyena. The reserve is also famous for its large buffalo and elephant herds, and sizeable populations of giraffe, hippo and sable antelope.
